No train this year owing to health issues....and a smaller village than I usually do...will post some close-ups soon....I have been permanently mounting the train track on plywood for next year (I have storage space a plenty and should have done it sooner....) Really missed having a train.....here's the tree in white light, followed by the blue color change.

Wonderful fun. Thank you for sharing. Could you please tell me is the tutor style tower building on the left center of the picture from papa Ted's collection? It looks like the structure we used to see when you opened up his site. An Icon by now... Thanks for sharing, Pete
